Based upon records of actual mining accidents, this video describes some of the fatalities and injuries that can occur in the use (and misuse) of front-end loaders (particularly if the operator is inattentive, careless, disobeys safety rules, and/or takes unnecessary chances). It analyzes these accidents, explains causes and preventive measures, and presents safe operating procedures for various work assignments. This video is designed to motivate front-end loader operators to adopt safe driving and operating habits and to develop a positive attitude toward mine haulage safety in general.
